A beautiful chain of pools high on Mumbulla Mountain, used since forever by the local Yuin people for initiation of boys to men. Please don't swim in the rock pools here - these are sacred to Yuin people, and they explicitly ask visitors not to swim. It is really sad to see that people are teaching their children to disregard... More

Mumbulla Falls (or Mumbulla Creek Falls) is located in the Biamanga Cultural area (which is part of the Biamanga National Park on the NSW south coast). A very short paved track and boardwalk leads to a look-out with great views over the falls and gorge, and there’s a number of interpretive signs about the local Aboriginal heritage along the track....

To get here from Bega there is a 24km dirt road, the first 10km is very good, the last 14km is awful. The day we went was just after there was a lot of rain and quite slippery, sliding around a bit even with 4wd. The road is narrow, windy, bumpy and lots of potholes, don't think i would like...

Stunning forest, and the falls are a beautiful, sacred place. Take care driving the 20km or so on the dirt track, it can get a little bit busy. What's the hurry anyway? Water was trickling when we visited, would love to see it in full flow! Maybe next time. Some folk were swimming, although the Yuin people respectfully request against... More

It's a beautiful area, with lots of wildlife, and worth the long-ish drive. There are also several informative plaques explaining the cultural significance of the area and why it is sacred to the Yuin people. There are several signs asking visitors to please respect the traditional owners' wishes and not swim in the falls as it is a sacred site.... More

We loved the falls and the swimming hole. My teenage son and daughter spent hours swimming jumping and sliding down the natural water slide. They had as much fun here as I did when I was there age. Forget the reviews about the dirt road being poor. These people must not spend much time in the country. This dirt road... More

We drove there from Bermagui it's a beautiful spot with a great natural water slide and safe cliff diving about 5 metres high , we arrived early not many people there by the time we left it was very busy, teenage and kids around 8 will love it , be careful of the slippery wet areas.

The falls were absolutely stunning and well worth the drive. It was disappointing to see that people had left their rubbish at the waterhole previous to us getting there. The information along the board walk was really informative and useful to understanding the cultural significance to the traditional owners. In saying this, the drive was much longer than expected (about... More
